    Hey ho!

    Here is your prize reveal @MHUK, including the request mega destruction courtesy of our new support tech Liam (check out the vid title screen below if you don't believe me):



    All you not-yet-joined-STOCKTOBER2!-erers out there, remember entries are still open, so if you get in now you'll be in the draw from tomorrow onwards until your name is drawn (but will be put back before the star prize PS4 draw). To enter just PM me your professional contact details if you are a UK based IT manager/tech type, OR if you've entered a VeryPC competition on EduGeek before, you can just speak up in the thread that you want back in and we'll add you.

    Good luck for tomorrow everyone!

    Al

    So the talk about repping reminded me of rapping and an excuse to post this.

    Huh... dunno what it means then.

    @sparkeh gets some tenuous rep for his tenuous rap.

    Rep POWER is the rep you can award and is a small portion of your actual reputation (also related to a few other things like time on site, number of posts etc).

    e.g. X-13 has a rep power of 501, but judging by his stars and bars, he has a reputation score of nearly 15,000 points (brown stars are 3,000)

    Your rep is heading towards 12,000 at the moment btw

    EDIT - @X-13 and I were involved in a quite detailed discussion of the significance of the rep icons a while back, I'll see if I can find his calculations.

    Glad you liked the joke. Maybe the next mini competition could be jokes that are funny enough to make Colin_M laugh in his current state of pain! What do you think @VeryPC Al?

    Not a bad idea! We'll let @VeryPC_Colin_M choose the winner from his recuperation bed. But before that...

    Let's get a few more Morgan Freeman voice impersonations in first though and then we'll have a vote for the best impersonation the winner of which will win a big box full of sweeties. Let's say the cut off on the Morgan freeman mini-competition is midnight on Wednesday 9th October 2013 and we'll run the vote on Thursday and Friday this week (last vote 4pm Friday 11th October 2013).

    I know I don't need to reiterate this really, but let's make sure we keep the impersonations tasteful EduGeekers!

    Cheers,

    Al

    Good luck to { any / every } - one else who has or will shortly do the Morgan Freeman impersonation !!

    edit - does that mean anyone who has already done an impersonation can re - try ?
